5 Reasons why Patriotism is Important

Patriotism is a subjective concept, as every single person has his or her own way of defining things. Such definition depends on the way the person consumes the concept of patriotism and how the person wants to reflect it. But irrespective of what we think about patriotism it is true that we all uphold the values of patriotism and consider it worth our time. Patriotism doesn’t stop with national flag, anthem and symbols it something beyond that, and it is definitely not something that is materialistic. So here are some of the reasons as to why patriotism is important.

5 Reasons why Patriotism is Important

The world history says it all:

The world history is a testimony by itself as to why patriotism is important. Earlier, even before we were split into various nations, it is that feeling of oneness and urges to save my tribe is the fact that kept the human race alive. Had someone felt vary of risking his life and saving a fellow human, life would have simply become impossible on earth. That is the human history, and now that we have seen wars, we know why patriotism is important.

It is one way to Integrity:

Patriotism is one way, or probably it is the only way to achieve integrity. It can also be the other way round that is with unity you can achieve patriotism. Just imagine our nation as one large family, and it will be easy to understand that the values of love, trust and compassion are the ones that will bind us together. Patriotism is a stronger feeling that will, in the first place, unite us as a family. So for a nation, it is Patriotism that is the mother of all other virtues.

Nothing better can inspire the youth:

Today’s youngsters are capable enough to bring the whole nation together and build a better one for all of us. But that dream is becoming a bit unlikely as there are a lot of other factors that act as a driving force for the today’s generation. However, if we can sow the seeds of patriotism into their hearts, then a stronger nation will not be a dream anymore.

Not everything but something:

It is the misconception about patriotism that stops us from doing something for the nation. Of course, it is true that we have had patriotic leaders and fighters in the past who placed nation before their lives and families. But that is not the case anymore. It is this misconception that prevents us from doing something for the nation. One need not have to sacrifice his or her life for the country in the name of patriotism. A small deed considering the welfare of the nation is enough to call yourself a patriot. It can be as small as planting a sampling. Not a great deal, is it?

That’s when your hand extends:

The virtue of helping a stranger comes out of the love that you have for the fellow beings of the nation. What better name can you give it other than patriotism? So in case if you find yourself or some else helping a complete stranger, closing an open pit, or helping the guard, then they are all deeds of patriotism.

 

5 Legal ways to Fight for your Rights

No matter how happy and peaceful your country, we are not always blessed with the feeling being content, there are always a lot of things over which we secretly agitate time and again. In fact, it is the right of every citizen to express his views, but in the right ways, that doesn’t hurt the life and rights of others. That is the reason as to why there are 5 legal ways in which you can fight against something in your country. This is because all of us have the rights to live the way we want and as long it is reasonable and falls within their purview, and the law will handle with care.

5 Legal ways to Fight for your Rights

So here are some of the ways in which one can convey his regret and agitate.

Back up an activist and support a cause:

In most cases, even when we know what is right, we remain silent fearing that the voice of a single person might not be heard and that we might invite unnecessary problems. But there are always a lot of activists out there who try to solve such issues. Instead of protesting along you can also be a part of someone else’s protest and strengthen them.

Filing a petition:

In most places, petitions are taken seriously and are handled with a lot of care and concern. It is the same reason as to why filing a petition and be a small but a deep step in attempting to protect against something. When you file comes for the hearing, proper action will be taken as long as you have proper evidence and a strong reason as to why you are working for a certain cause.

Humanist Association:

As a part of your struggle, if you feel that as a citizen of that country you are being deprived of the rights that you have to pursue, then you can contact the humanist associations and seek redressal. The humanist association will take you plea into account and will make sure that you aren’t framing up things and that your problem is real.

Take it to the media:

Sometimes if you don’t think that the above options will not work and that you need a better reach to create better impact and invite the attention of a lot of other people, then the best option is to get to the media and talk about the issue. Though media a little like ‘fishing for information’ all the time, they will not easily take the issue to the screen. You will have to prove yourself worth it.

Go through the hierarchy:

If there are people as are a part of the local government around you, then you can take your plea there first, and you can convince them to represent your case in the higher level or the apex law body. Going through the right channel will always void problems and improves the chances of you getting your rights served as early as possible.

In the recent times patriotism has taken a different turn. It is important that we all must be endowed with the virtue of patriotism and at the same time understand our rights. I am Gerald T. Roberts, and I am a regular contributor to this site. Earlier, I was just a visitor and was happy with the things that this blog was trying to motivate. I realised that they were always working for a high cause and decided to join the team. I have been with them for a couple of years now, and they haven’t changed a bit. I am proud to be a part of this movement.
